    I have been working at NewPage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Legacy NewPage Management was very supportive and worked to develop employees.

    Cons

    Staffing is being cut and layoffs are likely. However, if you hold a position that is not laying off retention and spot bonuses are generous to keep employees from leaving.

    I have been working at NewPage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    In a very low cost of living area, NewPage offers employees at the Luke mill some of the best wages per hour for their hourly employees.

    Cons

    The biggest issue NewPage faces is the current status of the paper industry. Constant cutbacks in spending and employment have plagued the mill for several years. Very little of the money generated is reinvested back into the company.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on making money. Don't be afraid to admit you don't know or understand something and allow the people who have worked the job for 30 years do it.
